The event will run from 6 to 8 p.m., doors open at 5 p.m. It is free to high school students or other people interested in a career in skilled trades.
The purpose of the event is to inform individuals about additional career paths beyond college.

“Corunna Public Schools has always recognized the importance of career and technical education (CTE) and have strived to maintain and grow our CTE programs. Sponsoring this career night will allow our students and the community to make connections to future employment in these same areas. Our goal is for our students to be career and college ready upon graduation, and this is another component of that successful transition,” said Sherri Svrcek, Director of Guidance at Corunna.
